Arts Council Haliburton Highlands Literary Arts Roundtable is pleased to announce that this year’s Writer in Residence is award winning author, Susanna Kearsley.

Susanna Kearsley is the author of 13 novels, many of which are New York Times bestsellers. Her museum curator background ensures that every novel’s historical setting is well-researched. Her passion for the people of history ensures that her characters fully engage readers. And Susanna’s
interest in mysteries and the unexplained flavours her stories.  Her novel Mariana won the Catherine Cookson award and that was a life-changer. Susanna has been a full time writer ever since, winning awards and accolades for her work, including a coveted RITA award from the Romance Writers of America.
Please join us for Haliburton’s first Big Book Club on Sunday, September 15, 2019 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm at the Haliburton Legion.  We will have a lively discussion of Susanna’s latest book “Bellewether” and will hear Susanna talk about her writing process and answer questions.
There will be a silent auction, with one of the prizes Tea for Two with Susanna.  You don’t want to miss the opportunity to meet with this engaging author.
Bellewether is available at Master’s Book Store in Haliburton at a 20% discount.


I am happy to announce the forthcoming event “From Inspiration to Publication”. It is a wonderful opportunity for anyone considering the publication of a book to learn about all aspects of the industry. There is also an opportunity for you to have an individual session with one of the panelists in the afternoon.

There have been a few changes in the agenda for the Panel Discussion … most notably the addition of afternoon workshop by Ruth Walker at no additional expense for those who have registered for the morning. The workshop is titled the same as the Panel: From Inspiration to Publication. Attendees who are booked for a private meeting with one of the panelists in the afternoon are welcome to come and go from the workshop to attend their private session.

Another major addition is that Jim Poling will be moderating the morning discussion.

Note that registration for the private sessions is limited and one of the panelists is already full so please register early. Here is the link to the eventbrite registration page:
